Video Download: Rick Rideout’s L&N Henderson Subdivision
Allen Keller’s Great Model Railroads Volume 9
Rick Rideout’s L&N Henderson Subdivision is big-time modern railroading with a single track main protected by Centralized Traffic Control. The 35×70 foot HO layout re-creates the line between Evansville and Nashville with connections to Chicago and St. Louis. This area is noted for its heavy bridge traffic between the North and the South. This is a railfan’s railroad designed for up-close viewing of all the action. Rick has built operating searchlight signals so operators can work their assignments with minimal direction from the dispatcher. Signals, detection circuits and the fast clocks are controlled by a computer that also checks on the condition of all switch machines and track power circuits. Rick will show you his unusual method for building sub-roadbed, how to kitbash structures, and how to use fiber optics for signals. You’ll enjoy Rick’s use of a walkaround trackplan to achieve maximum operation, and learn from the innovative methods that make the L&N Henderson Subdivision a Great Model Railroad. 59 minutes.
